COME ONE COME ALL to the Patrick Ranch Country Faire and Threshing Bee!
Activities include period games for children such as making wheat dolls, hand pumping water, painting fences, creating walnut shell boats, riding pedal tractors having their faces painted, hand washing flour sack towels and hanging them on a clothes line, making butter, grinding corn and acorns with mortars and pestles and much more.
A tram will weave through the Threshing Bee on half hour to offer rides. A food court on the farmhouse’s expansive south lawn offers delicious entrees, specialty coffees and cold drinks. All this to the accompaniment of live music and good company!
(Note: FREE trolley provides transportation to and from the Patrick Ranch. The trolleys leave the Chico Municipal Bus Terminal on the corner of W. 2nd St./Salem on the hour with return trips from the Patrick Ranch Museum returning on the half hour.
